I started these bird baths after our metal bird baths basin cracked last winter. I was going to throw the whole thing out but then had the idea to create my own ceramic bath.

This is now a portrait of Adam 50 years after the garden. Added a light wash to sink into the scraffitto. The eyes may or may not be white, I think I will emphasize the humanity of the form and render the pupils, it has been a debate. I was also thinking about adding a […]

I’ve been much more expressive in my process lately. I can only think  that this is driven by the long break that I took from working, but also I think a return to loving comic books. I believe reconnecting with the first love of art and illustration through the comic book art form has really […]

Worked up these two within about 1 hour this morning. I still need to cover the forms and add legs and necks, but I’d like to run out a few more of these as glaze / texture tests. I’m planning on starting a new bust form in the next couple of days and I also […]

Spent about 4 hours completing this figure in the studio. I’m getting a little stagnant on my efforts so decided to change it up a bit and allow the work to take on a heavier tone. This work I’m thinking about calling “wound”
